Volunteers at Christian City Treated Royally

Christian City recently thanked their volunteers with a royal event straight from the Renaissance.  Jack Sias, President of the Georgia Renaissance Festival, asked his staff to help entertain the over 270 volunteers that lovingly donate their time and talent to the residents at Christian City.  Lunch was served by an appreciative Christian City staff under a big white tent while performers impressed and engaged the audience.  Among the performers were Bret Blackshear, who demonstrated Curious Magic, Kathleen Finger, an Irish harpist, and Court Poetess, Laurel Wordsworth.
A big part of the over 40 year success of Christian City is due to the tireless, dedicated  volunteers who serve by working in Graceland Thrift Store, the ice cream parlor, the library or lending by lending a hand in the many campus activities such as the Country Fair and the Arts Alliance concerts.  Help with fundraising efforts is always needed as the organization relies on donations and community support.  Patty Johnson, volunteer coordinator commented "Working with the volunteers always gives me such joy.  I love combining people's talents with the needs of our residents.  It's a win-win combination!"
